Coconut Milk Kefir Recipe
 
Coconut milk kefir is one of the easiest fermented foods to make at home. Unlike yoghurt, kefir can actually colonize the intestinal tract.
Recipe type: Accompaniment
Cuisine: General
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon kefir grains or kefir starter
  • 1-2 cups coconut milk (make your own, or use a carton / can of organic coconut milk without additives and sweeteners as they can be hard on the kefir grains)
Instructions
  1. Combine the kefir grains or kefir starter (as directed on packet) with the coconut milk in a glass jar. (You can buy this online)
  2. Cover with a cloth and secure with a rubber band. Let it sit at room temperature for 12-24 hours.
  3. Shake or stir the kefir after about 12 hours.
  4. Once the coconut milk has thickened and has a slightly sour flavor, it has turned into kefir.
  5. Strain the mixture through a fine plastic strainer to remove the grains (you can re-use the grains later by storing them in a glass jar in the fridge).
  6. Store the kefir in the fridge and enjoy.
Notes
Never use a metal container or utensils to make kefir as they will disrupts the process and the kefir won’t thicken. Use glass containers and wood or plastic spoons.
If your kefir doesn’t thicken within 24 hours, it might be that the your room temperature isn’t warm enough.
